About Linda
*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so.

I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children.

The students must have their own instruments, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs.
Piano: I prefer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory, with en emphasis on rock, pop, and folk music. I include arranging, chord theory, and use of the many features of an elec
tronic keyboard, in the lessons.
Bass Guitar: I teach rock, pop, funk, and country music on bass.
Banjo: I teach bluegrass, country, and some blues and rock music. I can also teach a bit of old-timey frailing/clawhammer style.
English and Reading: I am highly qualified, to tutor/teach English (spoken, written, and reading comprehension) to both native English speakers and to those learning it as a second language.
*** I am particularly good at working with children who have a.d.h.d. and other learning disabilities!

My first lesson was great! I'm already at home practicing the 5-6 rolls that Linds taught me in only 30 minutes. Look forward to learning more!

About Elena
If you are looking for an experienced and dedicated teacher to help you get high scores on TOEFL or IELTS or to prepare for college admission in the USA, look no more. As a current teacher at an intensive English program in Georgia, USA, I have been teaching grammar, reading, writing, listening, speaking, and test prep to students applying to colleges in English-speaking countries or improving their English to be better qualified for professional growth. I am also pretty comfortable working on more general goals such as daily conversation, US culture, reading for content, etc.

Here is my philosophy of teaching in a very very brief form: I am a big believer in needs analysis and diagnostic. Before any goals are set, it is imperative to understand students' backgrounds, aspirations for their future, and proficiency levels. Additionally,
I believe that setting tangible goals drives improvement and increases motivation. Finally, feedback, feedback, feedback! Intonation or vocabulary usage, personalized and specific feedback is what my students get and love.

As far as methodology goes, I am pretty eclectic. Again, methods and approaches are chosen based on students' needs. Sometimes we just have to work on drilling sounds and intonation or some simple grammar concepts like “do/does”, while at other times open conversation is the best way to practice the same content. One key component that doesn’t change is the focus on the student. I work hard on planning my lessons so that my students do most of the work during class. I also strive to contextualize everything around real life by choosing materials that are recent and relevant.

About Tredarin
I have been Djembe drumming since the age of 5, taught by some of the country's top drum masters. After learning all I could about the traditions and customs around the djembe I began specializing in modernizing djembe and incorporating it into all genres and forms of music.

I drum in all venues, Salsa dances, clubs, reunions and concerts. Artists I have worked with include Ryan Kilgore, Keaira LaShae and a variety of DJ's and local artists.

About Melissa
***Ask me about special rates for online, weekend sessions!***

I have been teaching Spanish, Portuguese and English at both the high school and college levels since 2007. I have a PhD in Spanish and Portuguese (Romance Languages) from Harvard University, and I have taught everything from Spanish 1 through advanced literature courses, to Portuguese for Spanish Speakers.

I enjoy working with students one on one and helping them feel empowered to use the language right away. I put a lot of time and joy into planning classes for each student, based on their goals and interests. I keep my classes really light and fun, but I will also make sure that you are learning!

I have experience working with students with learning differences, and have worked with children and adults.

If you want to work with a real teacher who can design a
class just for you, I am the teacher you are looking for!

Whatever your goals are with Spanish, I can help you get there! Get in touch any time to tell me about your goals. Hasta pronto!

Melissa has an in-depth knowledge of Portuguese and is able to effectively explain complicated grammatical concepts, helping me to finally grasp some of the trickier verb tenses. Her passion for the language and teaching makes working with her a pleasure.

About David
I am a native English speaker that loves teaching the language to others. Having learned Spanish as a second language, I have a personal understanding of the challenges involved and the need to continually practice learned skills. I know that learning a second language is quite different from how you learned your primary language and as such, requires a different technique. I use a broad set of techniques to help you with your journey.

About Brittni
Hello Future Student!
Hola Estudiante Futuro!

My passion for learning extends way beyond the classroom and textbooks. As an avid community and professional leader, I am capable of teaching effective leadership qualities and communication skills to empower learners to achieve not only their educational goals, but also their personal and professional aspirations. I love to learn and teach others through effective methods appropriate for every learning style. By creating relatable experiences through my tutoring sessions, I am able to promote higher levels of creative thinking and increase information retention amongst my students.
Professionally, I have seven years of experience working in institutions of higher learning. My most recent position as an English Instructor led me to Costa Rica where I spent two years teaching History, Geo
graphy, Language Arts and English as a Foreign Language to elementary and high school students. As a fluent Spanish/English speaker, I have been teaching Spanish in my spare time to both children and adults alike. Working in higher education, I have lead study group and tutoring sessions for college-aged students. I have also facilitated training sessions for employees in my professional career experience.
In 2010 I received my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration-Marketing, with an emphasis in Promotions and Marketing Communication from Northern Arizona University. Following this, I graduated from the University of Phoenix in 2014 with a Master of Business Administration Management. In addition, I have 18 credit hours of formal Spanish education and received a certificate to teach English as a Foreign Language from Costa Rica TEFL in 2015.

Early into lessons and have 3 remaining but, so far, so good. Fulvia is well prepared with learning materials and hand-outs. She is patient and thorough with each lesson and has followed up with emails in Italian to force me to translate. I have enjoyed and would highly recommend Fulvia.

About Giovani
I was born in rural Oaxaca and lived there until I was 16 years old and decided to leave my hometown, the reason, because as a student I felt that I wasn't getting a good education back there, and I decided to find a better school with more resources and excellent teachers, I have been a pro-activist in education, ranging from middle school kids in Mexico and USA and adults also, mainly focus on cultural exchanges and health, I'm an MD, pursuing Pediatrics as a specialty.

With this portal, I'm looking for students that want to live Spanish, learn words and sentences and situations that you can apply your knowledge, for travelling, homework, or to impress your parents or friends. I don't like to have a teacher-student relationship, but instead a friendship, like those in Facebook, that's my ideology, teaching as a form of life and not as
a mandatory request.
